CUSTOMMADE (Denmark) Contrast Colour Dress

Hi! We hope your Lunar New Year celebration was warm and wonderful, filled with laughter and love :-)

Today’s entry is about Custommade, quite maybe Denmark’s best-kept secret.
Relatively unknown in these parts, we love how this decade-old label expertly combines a clean and contemporary approach with great urban bohemian style, creating beautiful clothing -of uncompromising quality- that have a distinctive imprint of its Danish roots.
The brand’s aesthetic is like a flirt between cool, nonchalant Scandinavian fashion sense and the style of a young-at-heart woman.

Simple and sweet, this Custommade dress embodies the youthful, individualistic women of today who appreciates great style over fashion fads.

VENA CAVA (USA) Draped-Front Top

A slouchy, oversized silhouette mixed with tonal stripes and dots? Beloved U.S. indie label Vena Cava makes this into a harmonious fashion statement you’ll want to wear whenever possible!
(RRP US$395)

‘Vena cava’ if you didn’t already know is the vein that returns blood from the body to the heart. But this coveted vintage-tinged line is more than just an inspired name. Since graduating from Parsons in 2003, co-founders/designers (and best friends) Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai have inspired cult-like devotion with their sophisticated quirk, flattering shapes, and modern colour. Incidentally, Mayock is also the girlfriend of Jeff Halmos, one-half of that other ultra-cool Californian brand: Shipley & Halmos.
Vena Cava is sold in over 150 retailers internationally including Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, and Harvey Nichols Hong Kong.

RRL (DOUBLE RL) Crewneck Tee

Created as a modern tribute to the tireless resolve of the American worker and the independent spirit of the untamed West, the foundation of the RRL (Double RL by Ralph Lauren) collection lies in timeless wardrobe staples – such as cotton jersey tees.
Made of 100% fully combed cotton, RRL’s crewneck tee -with or without logo- is knitted as a continuous, seamless tube for an authentic vintage fit. The garment is also specially treated and washed for the appearance of a timeworn classic. Above all, it’s so comfortable, you’ll be tempted to wear it to bed!
(RRP US$50~US$80 / £65~£75)

Founded in 1993, the RRL label is named after Ralph Lauren’s Colorado cattle ranch, which is itself named after Mr Lauren and his wife Ricky. The inspiration for the line came when the visionary dream-maker took a trip to Europe, tried to buy vintage Levi’s, and learned to his dismay that they were all being sent to rich and ravenous Japan. He decided to recreate the vintage look, with an ultra high-end line that offers quality and a timeless spirit. Sold only in RRL stores and selected Ralph Lauren boutiques, rumour has it that it is the only line that Mr Lauren still personally okays every piece.

Ralph Lauren opened his RRL ranch to Oprah and her cameras last May.
